The Senate was supposed to vote on the latest attempt at health care reform, but that’s been delayed. Julia Coronado, founder of MacroPolicy Perspectives, stopped by to explain what this means for the legislative calendar and other parts of the GOP’s agenda. Afterwards, we’ll look at the pros and cons of Netflix’s investment in original content, and then discuss the possibility that Sweden may become the first nation to go cashless.
